SWISSMAN is a unique triathlon adventure over the Ironman distance with a total ascent of 5200 m. The journey begins in southern ambience at the lowest point of Switzerland at 196 m above sea level, crosses the Alps with three major hills and reaches its summit with the stunning scenery at the finish line just below the top of Europe at 2061 m. In June 2013 the first edition of the race started with 50 competitors. We gathered some videos that show the location and athletes before, during and after the triathlon:
The X-BIONIC® top triathlete Timo Bracht during his preparation for the Ironman at Hawaii in 2012. With big ambitions, he was looking forward to the Mecca of all triathletes. For the 12th time he gathered his strength once more for the ultimate race of the year and exuded a confident looseness. Check out his way to the biggest long distance triathlon event every year:
Every year in summer starts the biggest yearly sports event: Tour de France. This year the three weeks lasting race starts on Saturday 29th of June at Corsica. All fans and spectators celebrate the 100th edition. X-BIONIC® supports Team Colombia since last Giro, which is already planning for the 101st edition.
The last Giro d’Italia in May earlier this year was a great event for the Team Colombia and X-BIONIC®: the riders achieved very good results and kept up with the best cyclists during the heavy mountain stages. The best rider of the team, Darwin Atapuma finished at the 18th place with a gap of 28:56 min to winner Vincenzo Nibali at the final ranking. Fabio Duarte finished 2nd at the heaviest mountain stage close behind the strong Nibali. These were promising efforts that make the team looking forward to the Grande Boucle in 2014.
Team Colombia, especially climber Jarlinson Pantoa, love X-BIONIC® Effektor™ xbs.precuperation™ socks and wear those every day after activity to relax the body and recover the muscles from the previous competition and also to prepare the legs before the next race. The special X-BIONIC® partial compression supports the blood circulation during the recovery of the riders. Check out the official Giro trailer of the team:
100th Tour de France: The greatest sports event 2013
The opening stage of the Tour de France 2013 starts with a flat course over 213 kilometers and will probably end with a sprint finish. After three weeks and 3479 kilometers hard fighting all riders will arrive in Paris as usual. The race will lead the teams over 7 flat stages, 5 hilly stages, 6 mountain stages with 4 summit finishes, 2 individual time trial stages, 1 team time trial stage and 2 rest days. Last years winner Bradley Wiggins won´t start and defend the yellow jersey from his victory last year, so his team mate Chris Froome became one of the main contenders for the title this year. The final podium will be honored at the 21st of July at the Champs-Élysées in Paris – we´ll see, who can leave the rest of the field behind!
